We do not believe in excessive business expansion and market domination. We're a small company of passionate individual volunteers who care about doing what's right to help those in the world who are less fortunate. No multi-national parent corporations..
We have a passion in Volunteerism and an extensive network of inspirational opportunities abroad. We have actively managed volunteer projects in Kenya and have a large network of partner organizations and local home stay volunteer hosts. We're experienced volunteers who understand what it's like to arrive in a foreign country with a back pack and a desire to help.
Why spend thousands on volunteering? It shouldn't cost that much! On average, our program cost is €165 p/week including accommodation, 2 meals, airport transfers, local transport and 24/7 in country volunteer support. The long term relationships we've built over the years allow us to manage costs on a shoestring, without sacrificing quality. PLL offer affordable, safe, unique and high quality inspirational volunteer travel experiences.
Our model is built upon outsourced long term partnerships with local ground operators. Our partners have well established programs and all the in depth knowledge of the local needs and challenges to ensure the right mix of projects which add real value to the local communities.
Supporting Local Communities
All our projects support the local communities we work with. By booking through PLL, you are helping to boost the local economy of the community.
PLL recognize that our volunteers want to have fun and experience the local culture far away from the standard tourist beaches and resorts. We also offer very rural modest placements for hard-core volunteer types and for volunteers who want to experience the traditional rural life.
PLL staff inspect and experience the programs first hand. The quality of the programs we offer is an essential pre-requisite. We will not send volunteers to a placement that has low quality accommodation or unsafe conditions. It is of course necessary to understand that in visiting a developing country, the standards will likely be very different to your home and as such volunteer expectations must be managed carefully. We work with each volunteer to ensure the details are thoroughly understood prior to departure
24/7 Program Support
We're with you the whole way; before, during and after your volunteer experience. We provide an individualized approach with a dedicated volunteer coordinator assigned to the volunteers. Whilst on placement, our local host family and placement organisation are there to assist you at any opportunity and will generally go out of their way to ensure your comfort and safety. We provide an information pack detailing everything you need to know about your destination.
We have loads of speciality programs designed for participants with specialized skills wishing to gain valuable experience in a particular field. From teaching, social workers, administration, physically challenged, mentally challenged etc
Many of our volunteers build lifelong friendships through the fellow volunteers and local hosts. In some cases, you'll be volunteering with other fellow volunteers from various backgrounds cultures and belief systems all working together for the good of less fortunate people. The experience shared builds intense bonds which can last a life time.
No-one expects volunteers to work tireless hours day in day out. We understand that volunteers want to experience the local way of life, give back and enjoy themselves while they're doing it! Weekends are always free for you to do as you please. Our partner organizations will help you organize excursions and tours at non-resident rates. Kenya has beautiful sceneries’ and tourist attractions to visit.
Whether you opt for a short or long term experience, our programs allow you to actually make a real difference. We want every volunteer to leave with the satisfaction that their time and money spent was dearly needed and appreciated by the local people. That's why we actively engage our partner organizations to ensure the projects are up to date and valid at all times.
We mainly deal with Placement services of volunteers, attachments, internships for volunteers, interns and senior volunteers.
Placement Logistics promotes volunteering. Our mission is to bring volunteers and organisations together to share time, skills and passion to promote Kenya's social development.
